Striped dress is one of the most loved outfits in summers or spring, and it’s also a perfect option for a beach vacation. You can either get a wraparound striped dress, pair it with sneakers or sandals, or you can go for separates with stripes all over just like Karisma, both options are classy and chic and make you look summer-ready in a jiffy!

Baggy jeans or trousers are not only comfortable but take your overall fashion to a notch up. To recreate the exact look, you need to have a baggy trouser or boyfriend jeans like Karisma and pair it up with a striped top. You can also choose a solid tank top instead of a striped one, and style it with a baggy pair of pants. To complete the look, you can opt for a cool hand accessory like a bracelet and have a pair of running shoes or sneakers. Get a quirk hairstyle and dewy makeup and you are all set to rock the looks.
